I had my THR surgery four weeks ago after fighing it for ten years until the
pain became unbearable. I also have severe degenerative arthritis of the spine
with advanced spinal stenosis at multiple levels.

I have used a Far Infrared heating pad for my back for years and it has helped
my back and arthritis greatly. I wondered if any members of the group have used
the Far Infrared with a hip or knee implant or if there is any contraindication
to using it since it can heat internally.

Otherwise, I am extremely happy with the hip replacement and am walking without
a cane and only a slight limp at four weeks post-op. I plan to keep up Physical
Therapy until my surgeon tells me I do not need it any more and anticipate a
full recovery.

Thanks for any help you can give me,
C

I was told not to use a heating pad on my knee after surgery.  I did use it on
my calf muscles however.
